Don Jazzy is known famously to have helped younger artists rise to fame as a producer, he made Tiwa Savage, Reekado Banks, and Korede Bello among others become great in the music industry.
In his Facebook account, he said:
“I lost my sweet mother this morning. The matriarch of our family. My supporter and backbone @indianpicolo.
I am beyond devastated. I have never felt pain like this in my life, but I am consoled by the good life she lived. She was loved by everyone who ever met her.
She was so strong until the last minute for us, even while she beat cancer.
I have never typed a more difficult caption in my life. Please pray for my Mum’s soul to Rest In Peace and for strength for my dad, my siblings, her grandchildren and our entire family to bear this loss.”
